He Cancelled — That’s All We Need to Know

“McCain’s Charge against Obama Lacks Evidence” is the headline in today’s Washington Post story on Obama’s not visiting wounded soldiers in Germany. It is interesting reading: Obama’s inconsistent reasons for not going are as lacking in supporting evidence as McCain’s assertion. One thing is certain — he did cancel the trip. We don’t need any evidence of that and it is damning in and of itself. Whatever the rationale.

If you had any doubt that this is a plant from the Obama campaign: It goes on to state that the McCain campaign is questioning Obama’s “patriotism.” Not so. But the campaign is challenging the sincerity of his much-vaunted commitment to our troops, a perfectly fair issue to raise. But the Post did partly redeem itself with “President Obama Continues Hectic Victory Tour.” Hilarious.
